A MASSIVE VIRTUAL REALITY PERFORMANCE
May 20 and 22 - HONG KONG
new shows to be announced soon!
"Reality is becoming a stereo-reality. Just as with sounds you can make a difference between somber tones and clear tones, so there will be a concrete, actual reality and a virtual reality. From now on, humankind will have to act in two worlds at once. This opens up extraordinary possibilities, but at the same time we face the test of a tearing-up of the being, with awkward consequences." -- Paul Virilio
With AWKWARD_CONSEQUENCE we artistically explore the future: if virtual reality will be part of our everyday life, how will it co-exist with reality?
AWKWARD_CONSEQUENCE consists on a live music performance that is attended in virtual reality space.
Using their own phone and Google Cardboard headsets, participants experience a virtual world able to react in real-time to the music. Yet the music will be performed on stage and will reach the audience in the “traditional” way.
Every participant will share an individual experience. In effect, every member of the audience will be alone in VR, but together in reality, united by the music.
The performance is the result of the collaboration of several people and organizations.
